Ed,

I ran your log file through my program and these are the results:

2-Color pieces solved: 14 / 720

3-Color pieces solved: 8 / 1200

4-Color pieces solved: 6 / 600

Total solved: 1.111 %

The way this works is it counts the number of 2C stickers that are correct

and divides by 2 (throwing away the remainder) to estimate the number of 2C

pieces solved. It repeats for 3C and 4C, dividing by 3 and 4 respectfully to

get the above estimations. Now it is possible that a couple of pieces happen

to have one or two stickers correct, even though the pieces themselves are

not in the right spots, and there is no detection for this case, so the

numbers that appear above should be considered overestimates and the actual

numbers may be slightly less than above, but certainly not bigger.

It looks like you can claim a little more is done that you originally said!

;)

Then again, maybe this isn’t accurate enough to claim much at all. What can

be said is my program is more accurate the colser to solved you are, so it

is best used for those cases. Anyways enjoy.

If anyone else would like me to run their log file through the program, just

let me know. Sorry Nan, but you are right, my program only works for the

Magic120Cell program’s log files for now. :/
